Default Random Lag?

Evening all,

just got my SE ARC sim free today, ive no sim in, and havent downloaded anything at all, yet i experience random lag between home screens, i can see any reason for it, very intermittent, tried putting as many widgets as i can on all the screens but that doesnt cause it, can have 1 or 10... does any1 else get this? im on .181

1st thoughts on the phone, nice crisp speaker but no bass
lovely screen and the autobrightness is very subtle
it was on just over half charge when i fired it up and no ive got 15% battery after 7hrs
no random lock ups or anything like that....

just the random lags doin my head in

It takes a while to build the Dalvik cache, also the Timescape widget is responsible for some lag.

ive deleted the timescape app, the lags apparent in some light games like this ninja game that runs up walls, my old zte blade ran it effortlessly but this skips/lags... seriously thinkin of returning it

It will settle.. takes the phone about 3-4 days to sort itself out, then you should see the smoooooooothness.

Mine definitely got better after about 3-4 days.... your's may be faulty though as my early "lag" was very infrequent and barely noticeable.

I initially had lag problems that I incorrectly blamed on lack of ram. But I've had the phone now for a week and have not had any lag for a few days now.

As other have said it may just need a few days to bed in.

Please keep us posted. Would love to hear (or rather not hear) about any lag problem. Thanks!

512MB is now considered a lack?

I want to live in the future too!

Anyway, I've had some lag on the home screen, but, I blame it on the massive amount of widgets I have. HDMI-mirroring results in miniscule lag at first as well.

my initial lag seems to have tailored off, im now runnin .184 theres occassional lag in some heavy games, and ive narrowed the home screen lag to swiping to the screen on the immediate right of the home screen... no idea whats causing this and its very intermitant
